Dear all,

I would like to introduce "Goal-based Service Utilization Using SPARQL 
and OWL-S" that has been made available recently under 
http://www.ai.sri.com/daml/services/owl-s/extensions.html.

The first paragraph of this contribution says:

     Goal-based service utilization helps service clients to avoid any
     dependency on technical details of the "how"s, just focusing on
     the "what"s. That is, if a service client does not need to
     formulate its request in terms of interfaces and methods but can
     simply express the meaning of what it wants to achieve, it is
     communicating goal-based.

Most of the semantic approaches to service descriptions depend however 
on interfaces because of relying on the object brokering paradigm. In 
the above mentioned work, an approach to goal-based service utilization 
is introduced, which is based on slightly enhanced versions of OWL-S and 
SPARQL in combination. If you have some familiarity with these two 
technologies, it could be interesting for you to have a look at it.

Looking forward to feedback from interested people,
